Fun Can Kill You - The Ugly Side of Sports and Entertainment

We all go to theaters, concerts, and sporting events expecting to have a fun and memorable time.  However, bad things can happen almost anywhere. Besides looking at what are the possible freak or unexpected accidents, CEO's can take lessons from these incidents to make their own businesses safer and implement best practices for the benefit of employees and customers.

Join us for breakfast and a fascinating discussion with Dr. Fried at the University of New Haven. Immediately after the presentation, we'll move into our Program Committee brainstorming. This session will generate ideas for the NYC and Connecticut Chapters upcoming monthly events and activities. It is always an interesting discussion, and a great opportunity to have input into our programming. This warm, collaborative environment of strategic thinking is a wonderful setting for thought provoking ideas and sincere connections with fellow CEO Trustees.
